A Study in Sherlock: 08/20/16
A Study in Sherlock edited by Laurie R. King is a collection of short stories inspired by the original Arthur Conan Doyle canon by a variety of mystery authors.
The Sherlock Holmes stories have been in the public domain long enough to have inspired many more fan fictions and pastiches than the original stories combined.
Sherlock Holmes continues to inspire adaptations: the recent movies, two competing television series: Elementary on CBS and Sherlock on the BBC.
These stories beyond being "inspired by the canon" share very little else in common. Some are straight up Sherlock Holmes stories written in the time period of the originals and in the style of Doyle. Others are modern day tales either with a modern day Sherlock (as both television series have) or more loosely, just a set of circumstances that feel like a Sherlockian mystery.
